Week 7 Checkpoint: Regan’s Economics President Reagan’s conservative ways and politics gave a major boost to the economy of the United States when it really needed it. His “Reaganomics” focused on cutting taxes, cutting spending on special interest programs, and increasing spending on defense. One of the main promises of Reagan’s campaign was that there would be a cut in taxes for the American people. It was this promise that brought many democrats over to the Reagan side during the voting and won him the election. These conservative Reagan loving democrats became the Reagan Democrats and played an important role in getting Reagan’s conservative polices approved. Reagan had a theory that he built on that if he could lower the taxes on the rich it would create more jobs for everyone. These tax breaks allowed for the rich business man to pay less in taxes and expand their business’ thus employing more people and creating new jobs.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
